The Sustainable IT Framework delineates five focus areas of a holistic Sustainable IT program: Power Management, Paper Substitution, Travel Substitution, and Sustainable Supply Chain, with Employee Education and Engagement underlying all efforts.
The framework provides a shared understanding of technology’s role in better environmental management across the enterprise, as well as a concise view into how different focus areas are interrelated. For example, as paper substitution increases, so too will the need for increased power management due to increased computing and storage requirements.
